  • Anyone out there had VASIK done?

    Our new insurance covers 25% of the cost, so Ive been considering it for the past few weeks. Ive only found 2 guys on our dept. who have had it done. I loved it, never had a problem, the other not so happy. Claims his vison is starting to get worse again. Still not as bad as it was prior to the surgury, but not as good as it was afterwards either. ( aprox 2 years ago )

    Anyone out there had it done? Any success or horor storys?

        How long before you could report back to full duty?

            I was able to see outdoors right away. but indoors in flourecent lights i had some diffuculty for several weeks. Its a medical procedure just like anything else, peoples healing times vary. Since im not a full time officer i cannot say how long before i was back on regular duty. I was able to patrol a few nights later, however had a lot of diffuculty at night. They corrected my eyes from like a -600 -675 so it was a huge correction , lengthening my heal time . But still the best money i ever spent. I would re mortgage my house if i had to , in order to afford it again if it came to that. after 20 yrs in glasses... ACK

              I had lasik done about 3 years ago. Best Money Ive spent!! I work nights and have had no problems!! If your looking into having it done, shop around. Some places offer military/police discounts. There are several different types of lasers that they use, depending on your eyesight and how bad it is. Do your research...


              I was back to work within 2 days.

              Good Luck!

                Like scooterlee said ...... DO YOUR RESEARCH. KNOW what doctor your going to and what type of procedure will be done. I had it done about 2 years ago and love it. In the first months following the procedure I did have a little blurring at night but it healed as they told me it would. I have had no problems and my vision is just a bit better than 20/20. I was 20/15 the day after the lasik. NO COMPLAINTS

                Know how "bad" your eyesight is and check with different places. Example: When I went I could have gone to Dr. A for $5,000 ($500 cop discount) OR Dr. B for $2,000. Same procedure, same everything except color of the chair. HMMMM not a difficult one there.
